The figure, revealed in the latest Scottish Government data, represents 1.2% of newly tested individuals.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said there was “some concern” that 66 of the new cases were in the Greater Glasgow area.
She added: “Further analysis is under way, and I will be chairing a meeting of the Resilience Committee late this afternoon to consider what action may be necessary.
“I will provide a further update after that.”
There have been no new deaths recorded among people who have tested positive for the virus.
